Ryan Gets It Right on Medical Marijuana

From the AP:
Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan says the federal government shouldn't interfere with states that have legalized medical marijuana.
The Wisconsin congressman tells KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs that he personally doesn't approve of medical marijuana laws. But he says that states should have the right to choose whether to legalize the drug for medical purposes.
In response to a reporter's question, Ryan said: "It's up to Coloradans to decide."
I love his answer. Ryan is consistent on principle here. He recognizes that this isn't a federal issue and the same logic that leads to federal jurisdiction and harassment of medical marijuana use leads to arguments for the constitutionality of the ACA. I hope the younger generation that voted so enthusiastically for Obama, partly on the basis of this issue, now notes the aggressive stance the President's attorneys have taken against local pot dispensaries. Why don't I ever the occupiers complain against the Prez over this?
